I recently bought a Zeiss Batis 85mm f./1.8 FE lens which I plan to use on a Sony A7II body.
I didn't realise that:-
a) the lens has quite bad pin-cushion distortion, and
b) it can't be corrected in-camera.
I see people saying, 'Just correct it in post'. But I also see that only Lr6 has a built-in profile for this lens.
I have Lr5.
Is there no way to download the profile to use in Lr5? I really have to ditch Lr5 just for that?
I downloaded and installed something called 'Lens Profile Downloader' but it has a very short list of profiles - no Batis.
I'm not sure I'm competent to create my own profile.
Any suggestions or advice gratefully received!
As of the Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 Lens Profile is only compatible with Lightroom 6.1.1 or LR CC 2015.1
So, just out of interest, what's the point of the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader?
It is used to create a particular lens profile that you need specifically.
